September 7, 1756

1756 September 7 (Tuesday).  I rode down to See Mr. Stone, and dined there.  He was engaged in the difficult Affair of digging his Well deeper: had Mr. Boynes, who was blowing the Rocks.  N.B. I returned by Mr. Snows whom I want to have work at my Kitchin, to finish the Outside at least, which is not yet done: he was not at home.  I returned at Eve.  N.B. my Chair being much disabled, I asked Mr. Stone for his (who consented) for my Wife to go to Boston.
